Adelaide Zoo Panda Enclosure

With the Adelaide Zoo entering into an agreement to showcase two pandas within its facility it set about designing a new enclosure fitting of its two new guests, Wang Wang & Funi. Manuele Engineers was contracted to build a complex steel structure that would in its own right demonstrate the uniqueness of its inhabitants. Great care was required to work with heavy equipment and large steel members with out causing any damage to a sensitive park land setting. A mass of detailed angular components have come together to form an outstanding landmark building adjacent one of Adelaide's most beautiful areas the Botanic Gardens. Building & park lands have come together in peaceful harmony.
